My birthday is near and I have been taking my wish list out… Hmmm I would love to have the Smart Ebike for birthday present but unfortunately they don’t bring it in Bahrain… But I have been thinking of buying it from Europe and having it shipped here. We’ll see. Meanwhile I just admire its simple design and lines on photos.
Just for the history, since in Bahrain and with the F1 coming up this weekend, the world’s first owners of the new smart ebike were The Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Drivers Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg who were given their futuristic ebikes last year before the start of the F1 season.
With an unconventional design in line with the style of the brand, functions appropriate for city use and high technology standards that are demonstrated by the extremely efficient and high-performance drive package and high-quality components, the smart ebike has an exceptional position and guarantees dynamic, safe and fun cycling.As a pedelec (Pedal Electric Cycle) the smart ebike is strictly speaking a hybrid vehicle: the electric motor switches on as soon as the rider starts pedalling. Muscle power is transmitted to the rear wheel via a lubricant-free, durable and quiet belt drive in place of a conventional bicycle chain.
Sounds pretty cool, eh?
On the other hand, the roads in Bahrain are not at all cyclist – friendly, not to mention the hot weather… Maybe I should be looking further down on my wish list, for the time being at least.
